‘No peaking’ read the gift tag spotted by Vickie Hurles in the South Lanarkshire branch of Bargain Buys.
Laughing at the error, the eagle-eyed shopper decided to post it on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, with the caption: ‘Make sure when buying your Xmas tags that the grammar is correct, unlike these from bargain buys… Santa says no peaking.’
The pack of 20 gift tags costing £1 got a good ribbing from others on the group, with one saying, ‘I got these, luckily my kids can’t read.’
Another said, ‘How did these pass quality control?’ while a third chimed in ‘Maybe good for mountaineers?’
Some, however, couldn’t understand the problem.
For clarity, peeking is when you that a sneaky look at something (such as your presents). Peaking is when you reach the top of something (either mentally or physically).
‘What’s wrong with no peaking. I don’t get it,’ one said.
Another person added ‘That is the right spelling…’, before being bombarded with people correcting them.
It’s an easy mistake for a regular person to make, but perhaps not so for a major store (Bargain Buys is owned by Pound Stretcher).
They’re still on sale on the website, and FEMAIL has contacted the chain for comment on the product.
